A message from your LASD Board President
Jane LaBreche Hebert


Welcome to LASD!

As I look back over my years as a member of this organization, I am so appreciative for the inspiring conferences and the wonderful people I have gotten to know. LASD has given me opportunities to grow spiritually as a director and as a person and is the perfect complement to being in my own spiritual direction.

LASD is an ecumenical organization and is open to trained spiritual directors of all faiths.  The highlight of our year is the annual conference designed to further educate, energize and motivate you in your ministry.  The Board of Directors spends a good amount of time on the planning and execution of these conferences and our speakers have included outstanding national and local presenters, most recently: Mark Thibodeaux, SJ, William Barry, SJ and Don Bisson, FMS.  Come and join us for a stimulating weekend as well as an opportunity to socialize with your colleagues throughout the state!

Finally, please reach out to other spiritual directors who are not members of LASD and inform them of the benefits of membership. If you have any questions, concerns, comments or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me.  Here’s to a great year!
